This is a basic block I drafted for an easy fitting slightly A-line top. This pattern does not include any fashion details – it is just a basic pattern I will be using to create different tops.

It is a pdf ebook with the total of 12 pages with NO instructions. Seam allowances are NOT included! Before printing the whole file, print only page 1 and measure the square – it should be 5 × 5 cm.

If you are using a Mac, use Adobe, Preview did not work for me (consistently scaled up the printout, I could never get 100% scaling).
